Black Apron Exclusives
So where do you start? Well Sumatra Siborong-Borong is one of the many Black Apron Exclusives from Starbucks. A little background first. Starbucks releases it’s Black Apron Exclusives in very limited quantities. These special edition coffees are indeed both exceptional and rare. They come from all over the world and are hand picked by tasters whose job is to go everywhere in search of the best coffees that can be found. The fact that they are limited edition makes them somewhat exclusive. Sumatra Siborong-Borong is one of the latest releases from Starbucks. It’s grown in the heart of the Lake Toba-Siborong-Borong region of Sumatra. The result is a very rare coffee that is especially full-bodied. Discerning tastes will notice a soft acidity and a hint of fresh basil.
Traditional processing makes this Sumatra coffee so exclusive. Batak women hand pick the cherries
which are then pulped and washed with the utmost care. Everything is then left to sun dry on woven mats placed outside the homes of those doing the work. Freshness is guaranteed because once dry, everything is sorted by hand and sent straight to the market the very next day.
The high quality not only comes from the processing, but the environment in which the coffee is grown. The soil is unmatched for coffee cultivation. Lake Toba not only has an extremely rich soil, but a climate that is ideal for growing. Sumatra Siborong-Borong coffee is only one of many coffees grown in this region, and every one of them has excellent and unique qualities. The processing, hand care, soil and region makes a huge difference. The good news is that there’s no need for you go go halfway around the world to experience the difference. Retailairs like Starbucks can have it delivered right to your door.
